Twilight Saga

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn....I'm officially in love.  With the overall story,  Edward, the bond between Edward and Bella, and pretty much all the other characters of the Twilight Saga.

And while the books and movies have been around for a little, for some reason I seemed to miss all the hype when they came out.  I remember hearing it mentioned from time to time, or hearing that the opening had taken in a lot of money.  Or randomly hearing the actors mentioned. But not until recently did I actually understand  it.

While searching tv for something to captivate my attention, I happened across the movie Twilight. (and was instantly hooked)  Which led me to the internet to learn more. Oh I had heard about it before but never paid much attention, not even sure why.  Though I'm asking myself that now.

Maybe I assumed it would be some cheesy teen movie, which it is definitely not.  The story is appealing to any age. (though wish the movies could be made with more of an adult theme to them)  What can I say I'm a sucker for romantic passion!  ; )

Well it led me on a quest for more, so on Thanksgiving I finally got to watch New Moon, and recently followed by Eclipse.  In fact, I've watched both Twilight and Eclipse twice already. (I never do that so it just goes to show you how much I like it)  And it took me only a few days to read Breaking Dawn leaving me very much desiring the next chapter in the saga!

Only wish I had read the books before each movie, though I plan on going back and reading each book anyway.   I honestly could not put Breaking Dawn down., and don't remember the last time I felt that way about a book. 

I think it is a combination of two things really, the love story and the supernatural twist. 

Don't all souls wish they had what Bella and Edward share.  The love that runs so deep that one lifetime together would never be enough, the chivalrous ways, the protective tenderness, the desire, intensity and longing they share for each other.  The overwhelming need to be with one another, to know one another, and the feeling as if they are meant to be. 

The supernatural twist makes it even more enlightening and adds the excitement necessary to keep any book or movie interesting.  It is different than say the Anne Rice novels, and different in a good way.  I like that each individual seems to have something special about them or to offer. The other characters were equally as intriguing.  Whatever....I don't even want to analyze the reasons why, all I know is I'm in love!

And would really like to read more. Then again Breaking Dawn had such a lovely way of wrapping things up that I don't know if I would want that to change.  But I am sad to have read it so quickly because I am definitely left with the feeling of wanting more....

  2. No, in fact I haven't even heard of the Hunger Games. I feel so behind in my reading. Is it as good as Twilight?
